All the different kinds of meats, cheeses, spreads, crackers and breads. So many different flavor combos to create. So much deliciousness to enjoy. It is my most [...]
This time of year has always been super busy for me but add two little ones to the mix and now I can barely remember to brush my hair in the morning. And with Christmas about a month away now, it’s only going to get busier around here. That is why when the nice people [...]
While the big meal is certainly what we all look forward to on Thanksgiving, the appetizers are one of my favorite parts too. We’ve always had trays of salami and cheese, pickles and olives, deviled eggs and, my favorite, the dips. This year, I thought I’d throw a new one in the mix with this [...]
